The farm offers an extremely varied selection of wines, suitable for every palate: traditional PDO wines, sparkling wines and passito.
La Torretta does not just mean quality wine but also olive oil. It has received recognition as being the first company to re-introduce the cultivation of olives in the valley.
Olive trees were growing back in the 1800’s as demonstrated by the presence of century-old olive trees in the area.
La Torretta is open all year round for visits and tastings. Tastings take place in a suggestive location with view on vineyards and olive trees and are always preceded by a guided tour in the canteen. In winter time a private room is available.
